Rural Development & Youth Training Institute (RDYTI)
“On 11 and 12 April 2011, we organized two workshops, village rallies, and meetings in connection with the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS). We discussed in detail about our military expenditures in comparison with poverty alleviation activities (Millennium Development Goals) in our country.
“Two budget experts actively participated in our workshops and village rallies. News of our campaign and workshop were published in newspapers as well as broadcast on local TV and radio. A very good environment has emerged in our state, and discussion continues among educated people, youths, and activists.”
